This is a general reference guide on how to write for historical research. As such, if you are not a confident writer or need some guidelines on how to construct an argument in a paper, do not hesitate to get a copy for your library. On the other hand, if you have a solid background in writing and know how to read and analyze a historical text, this may not be as much use to you.

It is very helpful and covers alot of relevant issues in writing about history. I recommend it for any serious writer even though I disagree on some fringe issues.

This should be required reading for all humanities undergraduates. MLA take note: this is how a manual for writers of research papers should be presented. It is organized, portable, a clear guide to the process of collecting information, constructing and supporting a thesis, and navigating the complex sea of citations.

A excellent little source book for writing formatting and practice. I found it easier to use this book compared with the internet. If you want to learn how to work with Chicago style formatting I recommend this little book.

I picked this book up for my college class it was in good condition and what I needed.

Very good for someone learning to write in history classes. Even high school if they are in advanced classes.

Exactly what we needed to write history papers. It's a great resource! Could not have asked for a better helping guide. Service was extremely fast with a great product.

If you need this book, it is fabulous. Everything is clearly stated and explained. It provides a very solid framework for successful writing in History. However, if you are a practiced writer of History papers, this guide will be of little use to you (but then you wouldn't be ordering it if you did not have to).
